Jeb Bush A Return To George W. Bush In Foreign Policy

It is quite clear that former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, despite his statement at the end of this week that he would not have gone into Iraq had he known the results of this foreign policy disaster, would be very likely to follow the same Neoconservative foreign policy of George W. Bush if he won the Presidency.

Jeb Bush has the same foreign policy hawks behind him who were behind George W. Bush, people such as Paul Wolfowitz, Donald Rumsfeld, Elliott Abrams, John Bolton, and Dick Cheney. Some may be close to other GOP candidates, such as Ted Cruz for the moment, but be assured that if Jeb Bush wins the nomination, they will come rushing to unite around Jeb.

Considering that Jeb seemed to repudiate his brother’s Iraq War policy in a hesitant way, and yet no denunciation from the ultimate hawk, Dick Cheney, tells the truth of the situation—that Jeb would be a repeat of George W. Bush in foreign policy, without any doubts or scruples.

Therefore, despite some signs of moderation on domestic affairs, and more reasonable rhetoric than many other GOP Presidential possibilities, Jeb Bush would take us back to the disastrous past, and must be prevented from being the Republican Presidential nominee, or the President of the United States in 2017!

    I personally don’t like any Bush when it comes to domestic policy, all of them are big government Republicans. But I must say that I believe it was not a mistake to invade Iraq giving the information Bush had at the time. Information not only supplied by US intelligence but by every single allied intelligence agency, the Brits, the French, the Israelis, the German etc.

    At this point, I think former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has one asset: the campaign money. But, and this isn’t out of the realm of possibility, if he sees that shift away from him, en route to trying to win his party’s nomination, we would then be able to gradually write him off. The corporate and military factions love the Bushes. But, just how much they do has become a question.

    D, I think Jeb is highly unlikely to be the GOP nominee, and more than ever, I sense Marco Rubio with the edge for the nomination, and Florida is the key swing state, along with Ohio.

    If john Kasich enters the race, it could be between Rubio (the young one) and Kasich (the man with the most experience of any GOP potential nominee).

    I have already, in an entry on here, compared Kasich in that regard to Joe Biden–EXPERIENCE in office, and competency!
